My Students

I teach upper elementary students; each one uniquely designed to learn in a very special way. In order for my students to reach their full potential, it is my duty as their teacher to provide them with as many opportunities of learning as possible. These new age students are not engaged by the typical desk-seated lectures. They desire to move around. They desire the latest technology. They desire fun, intellectually driven environments.

Many of my students come into my classroom to escape the trials or hardships within their homes and community.

My goal within my classroom is to shape my lessons to best fit the diversity of my students so that each student is accounted for and their grade level skills are being met.

All of my students have dreams, dreams far beyond what many of their family members have ever envisioned for themselves. With your help, these students will be able to use instructional tools that can engage their learning and dive deeper into their intellectual capabilities.

My Project

Have you ever walked in a classroom and seen the students slouched down in their hard seats? Maybe a kid sitting sideways because he/she can’t fit comfortably in their desk! I know that during my elementary years, I was super excited when the teacher called carpet time or group work activities because it meant that I could leave my dreaded desk seating! I have witnessed that students are more engaged and willing to learn when they are given the opportunity to explore seating arrangements within their learning environment! Flexible seating has to be the greatest incentive to place in a new century classroom!
